The Static Jacks: EU Tour Feb 2012 (w/ The Wombats, Grouplove, Howler)

We’re extremely excited to announce that The Static Jacks will tour the UK next month, following on from their introductory shows at the end of November.

The run includes three dates supporting The Wombats, which will make TSJ the first LFC Records band to play at the O2 Academy in Brixton, and one with fellow countrymen Grouplove in Brighton. We can also reveal that the band will be supporting Howler at Paris’ Fleche d’Or on Wednesday 8 Feb, and will be appearing at Berlin’s Magnet venue on Sat 11 Feb.

The band are on the road to promote their debut full-length, “If You’re Young”, which is out through Fearless Records on 5 March. The double A-sided 7″ vinyl of “Into The Sun” / “Mercy, Hallelujah” (which we put out late last year) will be on sale on the tour, or you can pick one up before it all kicks off, from our shop.

Check out a the band finishing their set at Koko in November with “Into The Sun”:

Introducing: Pete Hickman And The Divers

One thing we love about the internet is the ability to find a great bands from all over the world every day, without the hassle of even putting shoes on. Sure, there’s a hell of a lot of mediocrity out there, but amongst the plethora of acts trying their darnedest to get heard, the law of averages suggests there’ll be diamond in the rough every now and again.

And it’s very exciting when something comes out of the speakers that isn’t total drivel. You know, actual songs. Ones that don’t try to do too much, and possess some great instrumentation and a juicy chorus. Most of the time, it’s all we ask for. You’d be surprised at the number of bands who shy away from this formula.

Anyway, step forward Pete Hickman And The Divers – our latest discovery fitting the above criteria. They’re a London four piece who take us on a massive nostalgia trip back to our early teenage years with their blend of US alt rock that was popular in the early to mid-nineties. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Bush, Dinosaur Jr – that sort of thing. Bands whose albums you probably bought on the day of release, before super-glueing their badge onto your backpack.

The band haven’t done an awful lot so far, apart from some rudimentary London gigging, but they’ve just posted a studio video of them playing a track of called “A Little Better”, which might open the door to bigger and better things. We think it’s superb, and can’t wait to hear more where it came from.

Introducing: Monogold

Another day, another Brooklyn band: Monogold are the latest three piece from the NYC borough starting to make a noise loud and exciting enough to be heard outside of their hometown. From what we can see, they’ve been doing the rounds at various local venues (and Willaimsburg rooftops) for a year or two, lending support to the likes of YACHT and Bear Hands along the way.

Just now, they’ve been picked up by the ever-on-it Charlie Ashcroft at Amazing Radio, who’s giving initial UK spins to their “Spirit Or Something” track on the station’s “Audition” show, which is lifted from their 2011 full length “The Softest Glow”, available via their Bandcamp page.

The aforementioned track is four minutes of psychedelic, tropical infused indie-pop that recalls the colourful, free spirited experimentalism of bands like Animal Collective, Yeasayer, MGMT or The Go! Team. It’s also a track that we imagine would go down an absolute storm live. We’re picturing crazed, face-painted fans and plenty of dancing, and as such are eagerly awaiting the announcement of some UK dates.
